You're finally home, and it's time for the holiday festivities to begin. To the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of the holidays, we love you because we get a whole month of family time without any exams or assignments to worry about. And who's better to put into context every emotion of the holiday season than Sheldon Cooper?

1. When you're finally home and get to see your pets.

Sure you missed your family, but you might've missed your furbabies more.

2. Going Christmas shopping with all the sick people that are much too close.

Because everyone seems to have a cold, and no one knows how to cover their mouth.

3. When your boo tells you they found you the perfect gift.

Material things aren't what's important, but who doesn't get excited about a great surprise?

4. When your younger sibling wakes you up at 8 a.m. on Christmas morning.

You don't have to be happy about it, but you do have to get up, because you're a good older sibling, right?

5. Going to your relative's houses'.

You know, the ones you haven't seen since you were in diapers?

6. "How's college going?"

WE'RE ON A BREAK.

7. When Christmas dinner is ready.

Debatably the best part of the holidays.

8. When your mom asks if you want Christmas cookies.

The best of all Christmas desserts.

9. When one of your relatives had too much Christmas Cheer.

We all have at least one relative that indulges in a little too much Holiday Cocoa and becomes even more interesting than they were before.

10. When that one family member is telling you all their problems, and you don't know how to react.

We're just college kids barely holding it together ourselves.

11. But despite everything, you're still happy to be spending time with your family.

The holidays can be stressful, but even still, nothing beats spending time with your family with no deadlines looming over your head. Try to remember that while at your family gatherings when you're struggling to stay chill. Happy Holidays!
